Re: Internet connection keeps dropping

Says it has the most up to date driver - but Realtek say you should download from motherboard manufacturer site??

 

It is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.  

 

Are you thinking it is a problem with this because the laptop works ok?

 

Sorry - so many questions!!!!!!

 

Will swap back to test socket

Re: Internet connection keeps dropping

It's unusual for the wireless to keep working when the ethernet cable doesn't.

9/10 times it's the other way round

 

If it's up to date, then it might be ok. You could look at the realtek site, to see if there is a different version.

(The roll back driver should work if you decide to install from realtek - should it not work)

 

It could by a faulty hub...Smiley Sad

Re: Internet connection keeps dropping

 

 

It may be a good idea to avoid the current WindowsUpdate driver for this ethernet adaptor for this reason.

I think this is the current link to your Ethernet Drivers?

Re: Internet connection keeps dropping

Have just been and found my own update - there is one more recent than the one windows was finding.  It is more recent than the linked problem - so fingers crossed - will let you know.

 

We plug into test socket / check noise

 

Thank you so much everyone - all your help is really appreciated
